Metropolitan Ministry Partnership
Still Feeds All Comers
The local partnership between RUMC, other neighborhood churches, and Metropolitan Ministry is still going strong. Every Saturday, between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM everyone is welcome to a free meal at our church. Hot food is prepared in the Metropolitan Ministry (MetroMin) kitchen downtown, and it is served piping hot at RUMC. RUMC provides drinks and deserts to go along with the three course luncheon provided by MetroMin.
The Partnership is also returning to the practice of serving a free Spaghetti Dinner every Wednesday. We will be serving spaghetti, French bread, salad, drinks, and desserts, starting at 6:00 PM.
Come join us either on Wednesday evening or at our Saturday luncheon, and feel free to bring your friends.
Come to the Mother’s Day Banquet
The United Methodist Men and the Care Committee are sponsoring a Mother’s Day Banquet on Saturday, May 12th, starting at 5:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall. In addition to a catered dinner, the banquet will include many of popular traditions that you have come to enjoy in years past. These include:
